Mary Nichol – Greenpeace
Greenpeace has raised global awareness about the dangers of Arctic oil drilling, climbed oil rigs to obstruct operations, mobilized nearly three million people and celebrated as major oil companies backed off plans to drill in the Arctic. They will not stop until the Arctic is declared a global sanctuary. Join me to hear Mary Nichol share with us all the very solid reasons when drilling in the Arctic is a bad idea for all of us – not just Mother Earth. Mary is the National Activist Network Director at Greenpeace and is inspired by activism full of love and hope and by thinking about how to build stronger networks across the globe – for the benefit of every citizen on the planet. Excited much? I am! This show is made possible through the generous support of the Habitat for Humanity Tucson.
There is a fair bit of talk about the rush for the arctic for economic and strategic reasons - and where there is international interest on the seas, the nations involved need to think about what is the best way to secure their interests.
While the initial thought might be Navy - is the natural answer really the Coast Guard? If the USCG is the right answer, is it trained, manned and equipped for the job?
What does it need to do in order to fulfill its role - and why may it be the best answer to the question - who will show the flag up north?
Our guest this Sunday for the full hour from 5-6pm EST will be U.S. Naval War College Professor James R. Holmes. As a starting point for our conversation, we will use his latest article in Foreign Policy: America Needs a Coast Guard That Can Fight: As the Arctic becomes an arena for conflict, the United States’ forgotten naval force will need to cowboy up.
1. As China and Russia boost their military presence in the resource-rich far north, U.S. intelligence agencies are scrambling to study potential threats in the Arctic for the first time since the Cold War -- a sign of the region’s growing strategic importance.
2. Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday ordered snap checks on troop combat readiness in Russia’s central military district.
3. Turkish warplanes bombed Kurdish insurgent targets overnight after the militants staged what appeared to be their deadliest attack since the collapse of a two-year-old ceasefire in July.
4. The fog created by the ostensibly impending resignation of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas appeared to clear on Monday, as details emerged indicating that the resignation threats were a diversion ahead of a dramatic move planned by the Palestinians: declaring Palestine a state under occupation and reneging on their obligations as detailed in the Oslo Accords.
5. The Israel Defense Forces is set to unveil a new radar system developed by the army that would improve warning time for southern residents in cases of incoming short-range rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip..

The prophetic passage of Scripture that we are looking at today is Esther 7:3-6.
Our second coming quote for today is from John Piper: He said, "The center of Christianity is the coming of the Son of God into the world as a real man to destroy the works of the devil and create a new people for His own glory. The very heart of our faith is that He did this by obeying the law of God, dying for the sins of His people, rising victorious over death, ascending to God’s right hand with all His enemies under his feet. The second coming of Christ is the completion of His saving work."
Greenpeace activists are hanging from a bridge in Portland Oregon, blocking a Shell ice breaker from sailing from the repair dock to the Arctic Sea.They intend to stay until President Obama hears their concern about arctic drilling. If you agree with the protesters, you can sign their message to the president. Tell Obama to stop Arctic oil exploration! - Save the Arctic
Greenpeace is not alone. Kayaktivists are on the scene, and have been protesting Shell on several occasions in several locations in the PNW. Here are more opportunities to be heard.

Another curious side effect on Earth due to Saturn’s flare up was the appearance of more dark and densely lit northern aurora effects around the arctic circle, a result of Saturn’s composition being that of a flaring brown dwarf star. These magnified aurora would act as a dense ring creating a shadow on the Earth’s surface from both the light of the approaching Sun and the northern Saturnian sun. While the Earth generally still enjoyed a global warmth, this shadow encompassed the higher latitudes of what is today North America, northern Europe and much of Russia (but not Siberia). The effect was what we know as the Ice Ages.These filaments were primarily composed of Saturn’s discharged particles of water, the remainder having being retained by Saturn to form that planet’s distinctive rings. In what caused the end of the Golden Age one of these frozen watery filaments collided with the Earth as the Saturnian string of planets was being captured by the Sun.Atlantis sank beneath the waves; the great continent of Mu perished. Earthquakes of unimaginable magnitudes raked the Earth while giant winds scoured its surface blotchy and dimming Saturn was clearly starting to drift apart from its former system of planets. Severed from their electrical chain-like links to their original sun, the planets Venus and Mars ran amok. Venus and Mars loomed large in the heavens and provided the inspiration for much of mythology’s greatest stories.retreating Saturn, or at least its position in the sky over the Earth, was now being stalked by another player in the grand cosmic drama – Jupiter

Geoengineering is the spraying of aerosol chemicals, toxic metals, biological agents and high tech nanobots in our skies that effect our soils, water, air, plants, animals and us. This has occurred, increasing gradually, for at least 20 years with a quiet cover story of combating global warming.
Weather control, profit, climate change, severe storms, drought, crop destruction, interfering with nature, poisoning the populace, reducing intelligence, mind control, reduced immune strength, inducing pandemic, transforming humans into biological robots, and depopulation are all part of the multi-purpose global control agenda of an elite cabal. They are also causing methane to be released from the arctic ice that could end life.
Atmospheric Aerosol Geo-engineering and Solar Radiation Management are the formal names for spraying chemicals in our skies since at least the mid 1990‘s. Weather modification is a major purpose, which utilizes the frequencies produced by HAARP technology to cause severe storms and droughts, destroying crops while also poisoning the populace.
Meanwhile, intelligence is diminishing, health problems are increasing and early death is engendered. It is crucial to learn how to protect ourselves as best we can while organizing locally to get these harmful activities stopped. Local referendums or initiatives to ban spraying are being included on election ballots in various cities by gathering signatures and submitting a petition. Fracking, injection wells, dumping of toxic waste into the ground and other common sources of public poisons, such as fluoride in city water and GMOs could be banned similarly.
These are the stories that will shape the future of the world, but have been hardly mentioned by the US Media in 2015. In the next two hours, Bob Kirkconnell, author of American Heart of Darkness, will explore these issues and their almost certain disasterous ramifications. Just a few of the topics will be:
Half of global wealth owned by the 1 percent
Fukushima nuclear disaster deepens
Methane and arctic warming’s global impacts
Pentagon and NATO Encircle Russia and China
